Baxter Received Approval for avian flu (H5N1) pandemic vaccine CELVAPAN in Europe

Thank you Mary for linking this to us.


Baxter has received positive recommendations for its avian flu (H5N1) pandemic vaccine CELVAPAN for use in the European Union, it has revealed.

The Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use of the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) has issued its verdict on the product ahead of the firm submitting its licence for the vaccine - which could authorise its use in the event of the World Health Organization declaring a pandemic.

This recommendation comes after a clinical trial found that vaccines for two different H5N1 virus strains were well-tolerated and generated an immune response in candidates.

Hartmut Ehrlich, vice-president of bioscience global research and development at the firm, commented: "This is another step towards our goal of supplying a safe and effective vaccine to protect the population against a possible influenza pandemic."

In other Baxter news, the firm's board of directors declared a quarterly dividend of $0.29 (17p) per common share last week, marking an increase over the previous quarterly rate of $0.26 per share.

Is it Really SAFE? Or should countries make sure it does NOT have the Live Real Virus in the vaccines, as Baxter has sent out before?!


  1. Well, guess what...when TPTB get around to sending out bird flu to everybody for the next pandemic, I won't be doing THIS vaccine either. Do the sheep just freaking ignore what these people have been up to, and just run up and bleat for their shot when they're told to?

    If that's the case, I say, go ahead...have your shot. But I won't be having mutton anytime soon...gullibility might be catching. Given the track record, I wouldn't touch any vaccine B puts out with a ten foot pole.

  2. Positive recommendations??? You gotta be *hittin' me Alice! You want a positive recommendation? Put this whole Baxtard outfit under total lockdown and quarantine, then spray their entire facilities with their own patented premium grade of plague, and let all the bloody Baxtards stew in their own juice.
